Even as inflation soars and the prospect of a recession looms, sustainable funds are performing better than their traditional peers. Sustainable investment strategies must no longer be looked at as just ethical window dressing, but rather as critical to achieving profit while simultaneously realizing important social and environmental objectives for society.
This webinar will highlight the sustainable finance big trends that should be on everyone’s radar this fall - from the energy and food shocks caused by the Ukraine conflict, to “taxomania” sweeping the globe, and innovations in corporate and sovereign debt.
In the spirit of Building Bridges, we will also specifically look at trends that highlight collaboration between different types of actors to advance sustainable finance. This includes the continued development of the TNFD, upcoming COP and G20 sustainable finance work programs, and blended finance.
Join us for a quick overview that will prepare you for the coming months and that will lay the ground work for our Building Bridges 2022 program.
